Ahuntsic (died June 25, 1625) was a French Recollet missionary to the Hurons in the 1620s.


After almost two years spent in the Huron territory, Nicolas Viel decided to return to Quebec City in May of 1625. Ahuntsic accompanied him during this trip. After a long period of travel, they were assassinated by the Indian companions on June 25, 1625. The event took place near present day Sault-au-Récollet and was well witnessed and recorded.
